From where I sit, March has a serious identity crisis. The calendar may designate this month’s waning days as the beginning of spring, but when I set foot outside I’m immediately tempted to spring back inside to escape the cold. Don’t be so fast to disparage March, astronomers would say. They know the earth is […]

Welcome to the sometimes-unsettled and slightly mysterious month of September! Mother Nature surrounds us in her golden glow and then turns the lights out early. Summer’s heat scurries along on its last legs while autumn’s winds and chills keep sticking their feet in the door. Vacation days used in July and August, many boaters start […]

I However, as a boater, I wholeheartedly disagree with categorizing all intervals uniformly. Not all time can be alike! August zooms by at twice the pace of January even though both months have 31 days. In my world, one boating day in August feels like seven days in January. have only a rudimentary knowledge of physics; what […]

When a sunny and clear June day unfolded without a discernable wind and any perceptible humidity, my mother would remark on the “absence of weather.” In other words, focus on something else, because what are you going to complain about when the skies are blue and the temperature is pleasant? My mom’s observation sums up […]

Harborside eateries are considered havens for seafood lovers. However, more dockside dining establishments appear to be welcoming to those who enjoy seeing fish stay in the sea! About one million people in the U.S. are vegans (we eat no animal products at all) and over seven million are vegetarian (consuming no animals). Then there’s another […]

Sitting on the main outdoor deck at fatfish Wine Bar & Bistro, I felt like I was on vacation.  The breeze was blowing in from the Great South Bay, the boats were passing by, and table after table was filled with casually dressed diners diving into bowls full of mussels and steamers.

Captain Bill’s Restaurant, also billed as the “Great South Bay Seafood Company”, has been a fixture overlooking the harbor in Bay Shore for many decades.  But there’s nothing dated about the place:  a recent visit found it to be a bright and welcoming place that’s ideal for boaters to dock and dine.  The restaurant has […]

Think you’re lucky if you get a spot at the Huntington Town marina for an hour?  You’d be even luckier if you cross the street to dine at Tutto Pazzo, where the name means “totally crazy” but the northern Italian cuisine is both perfectly sane and way above your average harbor side fare. Heading past […]
